The test that was segfaulting is called Charts-TestDiagram, it is a VTK test.

The http://www.cdash.org/CDash/viewTest.php?onlyfailed&buildid=493486 posted 
by Ken shows the test segfaulting, which is what I was seeing locally. Not 
sure why this is one of the only tests that failed, I was checking to see if 
it was some kind of local issue.

It only failed on blackrose though, hopefully adding my machine to the 
nightlies will help spot some of these issues.

It did not seem to show up on the VTK dashboard despite having quite a few 64 
bit machines on there.
